La Rosa Retreat 2025

Transformational Weeklong Mindfulness & Yoga Retreat, La Rosa dei 4 Venti, Puglia, March 15.-21., 2025

Dive deep to rise high

Join us on a transformative journey at our immersive holistic retreat, where ancient wisdom meets modern science. Reconnect with your inner wisdom as we guide you through a six-day experience designed to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit, allowing you to refocus on what matters most to you.

Throughout this retreat, we'll delve deep into the realms of mindfulness, drawing from both time-honored traditions and cutting-edge research. Our mission is to help you find presence, tranquility, and a profound connection with your heart. Through a harmonious blend of mental and physical practices, we create a nurturing environment for self-discovery and personal growth, allowing you to integrate past experiences and set a clear path towards your future.

Each day is thoughtfully curated to encompass a variety of experiences, including enriching meditations, revitalizing yoga sessions, and mindful journeys through nature's serene landscapes. Immerse yourself in inspiring teachings that draw from a rich tapestry of wisdom, all while cherishing moments of silence and the opportunity to share your insights with our supportive community.

While our retreat grounds offer a peaceful sanctuary for introspection, you will also have the opportunity to explore the breathtaking surroundings of Puglia. The meals are not only delicious but also nourishing, with a focus on vegetarian cuisine prepared with love and care.

Our teachings are rooted in the wisdom of diverse Buddhist schools, such as Vipassana and Mahayana Traditions, as well as classical pranayama and contemporary breathing practices. We integrate mind-body and functional medicine coaching, drawing from over two decades of personal practice. Our approach is further enriched by our extensive professional backgrounds in the business and non-profit sectors, as we aspire to make a positive impact in the world.

Susanne von der Becke

My focus lies in integrating the insights from our inner work into positive action on the outside for ourselves, the people around us, and this planet. I believe that we are living in an extraordinary moment in history—a time when traditional systems are no longer serving us and where we are asked to create new ways of working, thinking, and being.  

My teachings combine ancient wisdom with modern scientific insights, complex systems thinking, and real-world illustrations for people who want to create meaningful and positive impact in our rapidly changing world. 

I am the founder of VDB Insights as well as an active Board member and Investor. Additionally, I serve as the Chairwoman of The Klosters Forum, an environmental non-profit organization dedicated to fostering positive change. I am a Certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher, taught by Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach, accredited by the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California at Berkeley, and a Transformational Breath Coach. I hold degrees from the London School of Economics, Harvard Business School, and ETH Zurich and have a Ph.D. in Science. Moreover, I am currently writing my first book – a mindfulness guide for business leaders who want to change the world right now. 

Outside my professional pursuits, I find joy in my role as a spouse and parent to two seven-year-old children. I live in Switzerland, near Zurich, where I love being out in nature together with my two dogs.
